5 Sistahs That Are Rocking a Relaxer!

If you've been following along by now you know that in my hair journey, I shared that  I still wear a relaxer in spite of the natural hair trend. Today, I thought it would be cool to showcase a few other sistahs with bomb relaxed hair!

That It Girl - Her polished bob is awesome. My hairstyle wanna be.



Relaxed Karen - I've stalked this lady on Instagram, I admit. I even bought some of the products she uses! Her wavy, relaxed hair is very lustrous. Love it!



Sweeneystyle - This is my ultimate hair crush! Can I say that without sounding weird? Sweeneystyle can rock a roller-set like no one else can! Go girl!



The Happy Ashley - I'm new to her, but her hair is beautiful! She's proof that you can have long, healthy, relaxed hair.



Sw33tSparkl3 - Has very thick relaxed tresses that almost look natural to me. I love how healthy her hair looks.





I can't say that I know their relaxed hair secrets or their relaxed hair regimen. Some may texlax and some relax their hair every six weeks. But, you can follow each lady on Instagram regardless of whether you are relaxed or natural. Beautiful hair is just beautiful hair!


What do you think of these relaxed hairstyles?

    1. Yep, it sure can. I think these ladies are proof! The bottom line is you need to care for your hair whether relaxed or natural.

  2. Relaxed or Natural you still have to make sure your hair is healthy and taken care of. I have relaxed hair also and there is nothing wrong with natural but no one should be criticized for their choice.

    1. You're right Kita! In the end, it's just hair. We should be supportive of our sisters no matter the choice.

  3. I don't know why people think that that your hair can't be healthy if it is relaxed. I think that people who have relaxed hair have to really care for their hair to keep it from breaking off, etc. I love all of these hairstyles. Great post.

  4. You can certainly have healthy relaxed hair just like you can have unhealthy natural hair. I have dreams of my short permed haircut. I've been mostly natural for 10 years but I dabble when I want.

    1. Exactly! I know what you mean. There are times that I see a natural hairstyle and want to big chop so bad. But my super thick and wavy hair could no longer rock the Bobs that I love.

  8. Oh WOW! Well they all do look very beautiful rocking their styles relaxers. I've grown to just do away with relaxers and be natural. It's like that movement (going natural) is here!! I see that so much sales in relaxer have gone down but on the flip side, natural hair products are increasing significantly.. Insane right?

    1. Even though I'm relaxed, I love the natural movement too! I love that we can finally embrace our hair natural texture and that companies are making better products for those that prefer to be natural.

  9. I relax my hair 2-3 times a year. I can appreciate the cute relaxed hairstyles you shared. I love natural hair and some of the styles I see but maintaining my natural hair requires time I don't have.

    1. I have tried to stretch my relaxer as much as possible too. But you're right, it does take a lot of maintenance.

  14. Omggggg...Stacie!!! Thank you so much for the feature truly an honor I truly thank you for bringing this post because I think that ladies with natural hair tend to look down on relaxers because they feel as though they cannot have healthy hair.... but whatever your decision the key is CARE. Thanks again and HUGS

  15. I'm relaxed too, but I've been wanting to go natural for quite some time now. I've had such an attachment to my hair though (it's one of my top features lmao) that I think I'm hesitant to loose the length so I've been trying to see how I can do it without the big chop.

    I've been going through the process of removing a lot of chemicals from my life, and while pretty much 90% of everything I use now is natural the hardest part has been giving up relaxers and removing harmful things from my diet. It's a process so we'll see, maybe 2016 will be the year I get it together lol.

    1. I feel you on the relaxer thing. I too have debated about going natural, but the relaxer wins every time. Mainly because of my super thick, wavy texture would only allow me to wear it wet and wavy. I need and love the versatility a relaxer gives.

      I'd love to see what you decide to do!

Holla at your girl!
